Persistence Means Hard Work
Persistence? What's that?
Comparing Walt Disney's Childhood To His Adult Life
Although Walt had basically the same mindset throughout his life, he did have some differences, like all of us when we were kids compared to when we were adults. First off, when Walt was an adult, just starting out from losing Oswald, he risked everything, literally everything, to get Mickey Mouse published and to get to theaters. People might not have liked it. I, honestly, would've loved seeing an old-fashioned Mickey Mouse cartoon in theaters. But if that scenario were to happen for Walt and his colleagues, then Walt and his small band of animators would've become bankrupt for sure. Walt would have to close the Disney Brothers Animation Studio, which Roy Disney, Walt's older brother, co-owned. But that didn't happen because of Walt risking it all. Now, compared to that, when he was a little boy, Walt wasn't exactly James Bond. He was exactly the opposite, looking at all other possibilities before taking the big leap. That is how Walt Disney showed similarities and differences as a child and an adult.
The Process Of Devin's Persistence
This Home, this all-knowing Home, looks like a paradise, filled with toys, endless food, and even a swimming pool in the drought-sickened land. I would really like to be there, if only it didn't come with a price. What actually happens behind the scenes is that the children are being experimented on, swapping minds with the Visitors, the elderly people who come to watch the kids, becoming one of them for a few days. The elderly in the kids bodies act very strange, only the kids don't know they are swapped, so they call it the Dream because they feel like they are in a dream while this happens. Being in the Dream hurts, and it is hard to do anything because they are suddenly old, so they have to have a lot of persistence and perseverance in order to get through it. I would hide when they call my name to go to the Place to become a Visitor instead of a little kid. Once Devin, Kit and a few other kids they are friends with find out what the evil Administrator is doing, they decide they have to get out, along with all the other children coming along too. The only problem is that the Home is locked down like a fortress. Figuring out how to unlock the security posts without the Administrator and staff knowing is very difficult, with riddles, timed codes, and lots of adventure. The persistence these children have is key to getting what they need, freedom. Even though you may not need to get out of a security fortress from evil's grasp, persistence is the way to go.
The Problems Maxcy Filer Goes Through, And His Solutions.
Another one of his solutions to fix this major problem was that he kept on trying and trying. To me, taking the same exact test multiple times every year would get very boring and repetitive. He could have just memorized the answers, right? Anyways, on his 48th try, he passed. When he got the letter, he assumed it was another letter saying 'You were so close! Try again!' So, Maxcy just tossed the letter on top of the mantle, where the rest of the unopened letters were. It wasn't until a few hours later that the letter was opened. His oldest son, getting home from work, (That Maxcy would've been at if he passed) decided to open the new letter, just for the heck of it. Expecting the usual, sorry, next time type of letter, surprised, he saw a 'Congratulations!' at the top. He couldn't believe it! Maxcy himself had even a harder time believing it because he has been taking that stinking test for over 20 years. If that was me, I would drive over to the college asking if this was addressed right. Now, to wrap this up, this is only one of the many reasons why persistence should be your best friend.
The Causes And Effects Of Keevan's Life
What Did Eleanor Roosevelt Persist In?
Then, it happened. Eleanor Roosevelt fell in love with her fifth cousin, once removed. He was named Franklin Delano Roosevelt. They had a happy marriage, but once Eleanor caught Franklin with another girl, things went downhill. More and more unfortunate things happened to the couple, but Eleanor didn't want to give up. But then Franklin became The President Of The United States. Eleanor was thrilled. She was finally going to be able to get her mind across and make equal rights for everyone in the US. After all, the United States is supposed to be the land of the free.
What happened next is one of the worst things to ever happen to Eleanor, but might've been the best thing to ever happen to her. Franklin caught the deadly disease during that time called Polio. Other politics urged him and Eleanor to give up, retire to a country home. Franklin almost agreed to do so. But you know what, Eleanor said no. She convinced Franklin to not give up, to be persistent. He became paralyzed from the waist down, causing him needing to be out of the public eye and not able to travel places to do speeches. Eleanor suddenly had more of a public life, being Franklin's "legs and eyes." That helped her even more to get her thoughts across for a more equal life-style for everyone. That was only the few of the many things Eleanor Roosevelt persisted in throughout her life.
